SUPPORTING GROUNDBREAKING INNOVATIONS IN HOSPITAL AT HOME
As its name suggests, Hospital at Home programs make acute, hospital-level care available to adults and particularly older adults where they live, rather than in a traditional hospital setting. Interest in hospital at home and its patient-centered and cost-effective approach to improving outcomes, particularly for vulnerable patients, has exploded recently. The Hospital at Home Users Group was formed to build on this excitement.
A dynamic collaborative of Hospital at Home programs around the United States and Canada, the Users Group is sharing resources and best practices, working together to expand the reach of our programs, and developing the program and policy standards to inform regulatory and reimbursement policies necessary to spread this hopeful model broadly throughout North America.
